Joe Mauer Forever Meanderings

The Twins signed Joe Mauer to an 8-year deal worth $23 million a year!

Up from the grave his rose!

Across the streets of St. Paul this morning, jubilant Twins fans are laying down palm leaves and shouting “Hosanna!”

Joe Mauer is our all-American hero who teaches children how to score a ball game and who transforms curious teens into adults with his gentle love. He our slim, monotone Babe Ruth, minus the slugging power and jazz-era depravity.

Some might balk at the hefty price tag, but those people don’t consider all the ancillary benefits that Joe Mauer brings with him. Joe Mauer sells t-shirts, umpires little league games, and can conduct a mass at St. Mary’s Basilica in a pinch. Don’t get pine tar on the eucharist, Joe Mauer!

I wish Joe Mauer would turn his level gaze to me and tell me that I am deeply loved. Until he does that, I will regularly consider suicide.

I have sent Twins GM Bill Smith a package containing the underwear I had on when I heard the news. I included a note congratulating him and asking him to pass the underwear along to Joe Mauer for his inspection and approval. I hope to hear from him or his lawyer soon.

Hooray for Joe Mauer! Now let’s hope that he can simultaneously serve as the Twins’ catcher and closer!

    I’ve changed my prayer to: “Joe Mauer, who art in the Twins clubhouse, hallowed be thy swing.”
